Message From the Dean

Welcome to another edition of the Coulter School of Engineering newsletter. In this issue, we are highlighting student and faculty activities. By the time this gets to you, we will have started our fall semester — with a large percentage of our students on campus. 

Getting ready for this semester has been a huge undertaking, and I want to thank all faculty and staff for their efforts and cooperation in doing everything we can to make our campus safe while maintaining a great educational experience for our students. Thank you for your support of Clarkson, and stay safe!

— William Jemison, Dean of the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering/Tony Collins Professor of Innovative Engineering Culture
